Sorry to redirect this a bit, but after seeing the 29’er comments I have to share a little story.

The other day I was talking to my buddy who splits and I mtb with quite a bit. I’d been doing some thinking about the parallels between mtb and splitting and I asked him if he thought that Splitboarding was the 29’er of the backcountry? I didn’t want to think so, but thought we could be seen as those dedicated freaks that chose some alternative b/c tool, etc.

Anyway, thanks for the comments here. I feel reassured that we aren’t the 29’ers of the snow world. Maybe a FR bike is a better analogy? A little heavier, doesn’t quite match skis for climbing/traversing, but rules going down? Yeah, I’ll take this one instead…
